TV : V - Those lizard aliens are back..

One of the most scarring image from 1980s television that was stuck in my brain,was the image of the (very hot) alien, Diana from V: The Miniseries swallowing a whole rat. A whole fucking rodent right down her throat.

As shown on the YouTube clip above, the animation looks really shitty and cheap now, but trust me, in those days I was literally watching this scene between my fingers. V was a television event --a must-see science-fiction extravaganza that had viewers glued to their TV sets and hiding under their covers.

I mean who doesn't want to watch aliens getting their human mask ripped-off, revealing a very scary, slimy lizard-like face? (clips below)

Well, guess what? V is coming back to TV.

ABC is giving a makeover to the 1983 miniseries with the help of The 4400 co-creator Scott Peters, who will be executive producer and help pen the new V. So far there is no word on whether the new V will be a miniseries or a series.

ABC's V will be set in the same universe, but its centerpiece will be a female Homeland Security agent who is dealing with her son's affinity for the alien visitors. V will also be developed into a video game, as well as other multimedia platforms.

Personally, I am a bit skeptical about this one (look what happened to Bionic Woman). Original creator Kenneth Johnson is not involved with this. It seems like he's pushing for a sequel not a remake, based on his recently produced novel V : The Second Generation.

We'll see how it goes.. what do u guys think?

    tak pernah tgk V? Wow, I'm

    and if u watch the 1st YT clip, the rodent was very fat.. almost like a baby cat. We were terrified back then..

    V: The Second Generation was such an ass. Fuck, gua pretty happy somebody else is taking over the series. And from what I've read, it seems Peter is just gonna take the concept and make it his own.

    Which is good. Kalau the series will be half as good as Batterstar Galactica, gua dah pretty much happy.

    I hope so dude.. ko dah baca the novel ke? Aku cari online tapi x dapat.

    I hope they'll bring Robert Englund back too.

    Hell yeah Robert Englund! Kalau Lydia dan Diana ada zaman sekarang ni, aku sure mmg jadi target penulis2 slash/ fanfic!

    PS: I grew up watching this awesome show, man.

    me too zacko, watching the clips on youtube brings back a lot of childhood memories.

    Apa pendapat kau ttg the remake? should they revamp, or just produce a sequel?

    so does this make me as old as you, dude? :p

    i remembered watching the makan tikus (and other gross things as well jugak kan?) scenes, and i was like.. whoaah.. cool...! can i do that too, mom?

    but frankly, i couldn't recall much about it. mungkin akku terlalu infant semasa disogokkan dgn citer2 mcm ni.

    tapi pelik jugak, bila dah besar ni akku tak minat citer2 sci-fi. mebi at that time, akku hanya berminat nak tengok dia makan tikus kot. no wonder akku suka tgk citer2 gross lagi gore :p

    to me, i would like them to remake/ revamp it. coz seriyesli akku tak ingat apa2 melainkan scene mereka makan tikus :)

    Im a V fan, Im a Diana fan! Filem TV V yg terbaik (sebelum mini siri dan drama siri), tak ada satu sai-fi filem TV yg berjaya capai apa yg filem TV itu capai kecuali mungkin Rosewell (but i think this is the film, alah yg Kyle machlachan berlakon tu).

  10. Edd Vedder said...

    oh yes.. aku ingat TV movie Roswell. Aku selalu confuse dgn siri TV with the same name.

    aku dh agak ko mmg fan Diana. Selalunya yang sebaya dgn kita semuanya akan ingat ke-MILF-an Diana.. hehe.
